Sources say detectives are searching in Mexico for the man who allegedly stabbed a soccer coach to death on a Manhattan street.

25-year-old Michael Jones was found on West 14th Street near Fifth Avenue Sunday morning with multiple stab wounds on his neck and body.

Sources say police are focusing on a Queens man, Orlando Orea, who they say bought a one-way ticket to Mexico with cash Tuesday morning.

Sources say Orea got out of the country just hours before his name was discovered and placed on a watch list.

Police say the alleged killer had been in a fight over a woman at a nearby bar and may have mistaken Jones for someone involved in that fight.

Jones, who lived in Westchester, was a coach with the New York Red Bulls Youth Training Program.

A memorial service will be held Wednesday morning at First Baptist Church in White Plains.
