Cesar Farias quit in November last year after the Venezuelan team missed out on the Brazil finals.
The Venezuelan Football Federation has not made any announcements about a replacement despite rumours that several coaches of local teams are being considered.
“I look for serious projects ... and think that yes, if it’s with security, then maybe,” World Cup winner Maradona, who is a sporting ambassador for Dubai, said on regional television network Telesur, when asked about the possibility.
Maradona, whose well-known leftist politics made him an ally of the country’s socialist government, said he planned to visit President Nicolas Maduro after the World Cup.
“We plan to talk a bit about everything, including the team,” he said. Rumors of him leading Venezuela’s selection surfaced last week in local media, but Maradona had responded by saying he was unaware of any such proposal.
Maradona was a close friend of Venezuela’s late President Hugo Chavez.
