Mumbai, Feb 7 (IANS) Actor Rana Daggubati says there have been a few key changes on and off the field this season in Hyderabad FC, the football team he co-owns in Indian Super League (ISL).

With the slew of new signings so far and more to come, the team is very very confident that the second time is definitely going to be the charm for the team," Varun added.
