Marco Kurz: 'Hoffenheim were committed against Bayern Munich'

Marco Kurz praises Hoffenheim's commitment against Bayern Munich despite their loss and refuses to give up on avoiding relegation from the Bundesliga.

Hoffenheim coach Marco Kurz has praised his players for their performance against Bayern Munich at home on Sunday.

Kurz's side went down 1-0 to the Bundesliga leaders thanks to a goal from Mario Gomez.

"We saw a committed team today, who never gave up," he told reporters on Sunday. "The players didn't stop running and we looked capable of scoring in the first half.

"I'm not thinking about the second division at the moment. We have to get used to playing with that kind of fight against a side who aren't Bayern Munich.

"Today's display is a good foundation for the next few weeks."

Hoffenheim are currently second from bottom in the Bundesliga table.
