We've got a new coach at my school this year and he has us playing a 3-5-2 with lots of overlap passes. He says that my runs are to vertical and he want diagonal runs, I can't figure out when would a good time to make a diagonal run and where exactly to run.
Is it to the other side of the field ahead of the midfielders to set up for a cross or is it more towards the goal for better scoring position?

what u should do is make a diagonal run towards the center of the pitch to pull out the defense from the sides... leaving the winger a clear run up to cross it in for u to score
