[OBITUARY] A 25-year-old man found stabbed to death in Manhattan on Sunday morning was identified as Mike Jones, who was in his fifth year of coaching with the Red Bulls Youth Training Programs.

“We are aware of this tragedy and on behalf of the entire organization want to send our most heartfelt condolences to Michael’s family, friends and loved ones," the Red Bulls said in a statement. "He was a tremendous individual, a fantastic coach who loved soccer and a terrific friend for many of us. This is truly a sad day for our soccer community and we will do our utmost to help authorities in their investigation of this case. Our thoughts and prayers are with Michael’s family at this time.”

Jones, a Hasbrouck Heights, N.J., resident, suffered six knife wounds to the head, neck and chest. He was found on a 14th Street sidewalk between Fifth and Sixth Avenues at 4:26 a.m.

The New York Post reported that a video showed Jones walking with his assailant down 14th Street near Union Square when the pair got into an argument and the man attacked and killed Jones in a violent attack.

The victim is not the Red Bulls defender of the same name who played in MLS in 2011.
