Bobby Gould says Wales should give Terry Venables a wide berth.
Venables, whose mother was Welsh, has discreetly indicated to the country's FA that he would be interested in succeeding John Toshack.
Gould, who managed Wales for four years between 1995 and 1999, told TalkSport Radio: "I think they've got the right fella in charge at the moment in Brian Flynn. He's been there, he's seen it and done it.
"If he wanted to appoint Terry as a consultant or as a coach then I'm sure Terry will fit that bill.
"But it's a 24-7 job that you've got to be committed too, you've got to travel around and you've got to make sure you understand what the Welsh people want and where the players are coming from. And Brian Flynn is in front of anybody [when it comes to that criteria]."
