In July 2010, Handanović was signed by Empoli, replacing Davide Bassi as the new first choice. However, he was then replaced by Alberto Pelagotti. In 2011, he signed for Maribor.[2]

While playing for Maribor, on 5 November 2014, in a UEFA Champions League group match against Chelsea, he saved an 85th-minute penalty from Eden Hazard to ensure a 1–1 draw.[3]

Handanović retired from professional football after the 2020–21 season. His jersey with the number 33 was retired by Maribor.[4]

Handanović made his full international debut on 19 November 2008, in a 4–3 friendly defeat to Bosnia and Herzegovina. In his next international cap on 28 March 2009, he kept a clean sheet in a goalless World Cup qualifier against the Czech Republic.[5] Handanović was one of three Slovenian goalkeepers chosen to go to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, but did not feature in any matches. He played his final game for the national team in September 2012 against Switzerland.[5]

Jasmin is the cousin of Samir Handanović, who is also a professional goalkeeper.[6]
