A Westchester soccer coach who works with the New York Red Bulls was killed in a grisly stabbing in the West Village early today that left his severed ear in a pool of blood on a 14th Street sidewalk.

Michael Jones, 25, of West Harrison was found on 14th Street near 5th Avenue about 4:25 a.m. with multiple stab wounds to the head, neck and chest, cops said.

Jones was rushed to Bellevue but was DOA. Cops at the scene covered his severed ear with a plastic cup.

“It was a frenzy. The guy was chopped multiple times,” a law-enforcement source told The Post. “He cut the guy’s ear off. It doesn’t get any more personal than that.”

Sources said 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.

The victim had been visiting a friend in the neighborhood until about midnight, when they parted.
