One of the most famous grandmasters Ljubomir Ljuboevic feels sorry about Svetozar Gligoric’s death. Chessdom.com gave his words about this sad news:

"The death of our Gliga shook me deeply. Gliga was magnificent chess personality and one of my role models. His sensibility for the art, culture and chess, along with the results that he achieved, made our country a chess superpower throughout the decades.

Gligoric’s immense love for the music is telling about the broadness and richness of his character.

I am really hoping and believe that he embraced his final moments with that melody that he perfected with such passion.

With the departure of the 20th century giant the chess world remains dismal.

Eternal glory for our dear Gliga."

Sympathy words to Gligoric’s family and friends were also said by the Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic:

“Serbia and our citizens will forever remember the Grandmaster, the King on the chess-board of Serbia, the remarkable man who left a historic mark in his country and in the whole world”.
