Top Salvadoran and former MLS NY Red Bulls player Alfredo Pacheco was shot to death, authorities said.
He was killed on Sunday in his hometown Santa Ana, El Salvador. Two others who were with him at the time were shot and wounded, according to the police.
The 33 year old defender’s career fell drastically in 2013 when the Salvadoran Football Federation banned him along with 12 other players for life. The ban was issued for match-fixing. Please send out your prayers and thoughts to Alfredo Pacheco’s family and friends along with the Major League Soccer team the New York Red Bulls and the Salvadoran Soccer Federation
Our thoughts and prayers are with Alfredo Pacheco’s family & friends. #RBNY
