FAW denies link with ex-Tottenham boss Venables

The Football Association of Wales have played down reports linking Terry Venables with the manager's job.

Reports have linked former England boss Venables with the vacancy, while Ryan Giggs, Martin O'Neill and Chris Coleman are among those also being touted as potential permanent successors to John Toshack, who stepped down earlier this month.

Brian Flynn, who has been appointed as caretaker manager for Wales' forthcoming Euro 2012 qualifying matches against Bulgaria and Switzerland, is another candidate for the full-time job, but the FAW insists they are not yet inviting applications for the post.

A spokesman for the FAW said: "We've not actually advertised the position at all as yet, so anybody who is throwing their hat into the ring is doing so very much from their own point of view at the moment."
