However, away from the pitch, Jill – who announced her retirement from football in August – runs her café with her girlfriend Shelly, the younger sister of former England star Rachel Unitt. The two regularly work together at the café.

Their coffee shop is called Boxx2Boxx, following Manchester City player Jill’s position on the pitch as a box-to-box midfielder. It is located at 375 Palatine Road in Northenden, Manchester.

The couple opened the café – serving hot beverages including flat whites, chai lattes and teas – in April 2021. As well as a thirst-quenching menu, they also host special weekly events including Wednesday walks and board game nights.

Speaking earlier this year at the Manchester Evening NewsShelly said: ‘Since the Euro, obviously it’s still very busy if I’m totally honest, but then when Jill’s in the shop, it gets completely manic, wild. Everyone wants to come down and chat and Jill has plenty of time for everyone.

“I feel like everyone joins in and goes in. Jill will come once or twice a week, depending on the lineup and her availability, really. On the Europeans, for the day it started, it became ballistic. We must have had about five employees, there were queues out the door, everyone was just walking in, from all over the country though.

The café is closed on Mondays but is open all week Tuesday to Friday 9am to 3pm. They are also open on weekends from 10am to 3pm.
