MLS- New York Red Bulls

Former Red Bulls, Salvadoran defender Alfredo Pacheco shot dead


A former Salvadoran international and New York Red Bulls defender was shot dead on Sunday.

The Salvadoran attorney general’s office reported that Alfredo Pacheco, 33, was murdered in Santa Ana while with a group of friends. Two other people were injured in the incident.

Pacheco, who was one of many players banned by the Salvadoran soccer federation in 2013 for being involved in match-fixing, previously played for the Red Bulls in MLS on loan in 2009, as well as Club Deportivo FAS, C.D. Águila and A D Isidro Metapán in the El Salvador top flight.

The defender is currently the most capped player all-time for El Salvador.
