Hope Powell, who guided the England women's team to the final of the European Championship in the summer, has revealed she would consider coaching in the men's game.
Powell was linked with a move to take over at Grimsby after the final against Germany and has admitted she would take the right job if it was offered.
"If an opportunity presented itself that I fancied, I'm going to look at it," Powell told the Guardian.
"It doesn't mean I'm going to take it, though," she added.
Powell felt there was little difference between coaching women and men, adding: "It's just football to me.
"I think the scrutiny for the first female that does this - and one day I'm sure it will happen, whoever it might be - the press will be phenomenal. And if they failed it would be, 'Well there you go, that's why a woman shouldn't be in men's football', and if they did OK it would be a really difficult position for that person to be in. Really tough.
"It's funny isn't it because nobody ever questions men in women's football, never."
