JUNGLE queen Jill Scott is set to become a youth coach at Premier League champions Man City.
The Lioness, who won I’m A Celeb in November, is being lined up to eventually work with the club’s men’s teams.
No female has ever managed a pro male team but Jill, 36, who helped England’s women win Euro 2022 last summer before retiring, is taking her coaching badges.
She could make millions through brand deals and has been flooded with TV offers.
But although she is set to be a pundit at this summer’s women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, Jill is determined to make her mark as a football coach.
She has already reached Uefa B level and is now looking at her A licence, which would allow her to coach at a higher level.
And her first step in becoming a boss will be to coach some of the boys and girls at City’s academy.
Jill, who made 111 appearances as a player for City’s women’s side, said she had been inspired by watching men’s manager Pep Guardiola at work.
She said: “I went to a couple of his training sessions, which was great, and he came to watch some of ours.”
Of the 12 teams in England’s Women’s Super League, only four have female managers.
The star boss in the women’s game is Chelsea’s Emma Hayes, 46, who has been tipped to one day take charge of a men’s side.
She was recently linked with the job at Championship side Queens Park Rangers but missed out.
