The Giallorossi thumped the Turin outfit to keep pace with leaders Milan at the top of Serie A but Dacourt said the three points was vital.
"It was important for people, more important for them than me," said the French international.
"I have waited for this moment, but it wasn't an obsession. But I'm pleased it came in such an important match."
The former Leeds United man was courted by the Old Lady last season when he became available for transfer by the financially stricken Premiership club, but Edgar Davids was reluctant to head to Roma, thus scuppering the deal.
The former Everton star though says he has no regrets: "With Juventus a deal was okay and everything had been done.
"But Davids would have had to sign for Roma and he didn't want to. Otherwise today I would be a Juventus player.
"Regrets? No. Most of my life I have only played in areas like Liverpool, Strasbourg, Lens and Leeds.
"I've never known this climate and I have the opportunity of playing in a great team."
With the Stadio Olimpico outfit six points off the Rossoneri, Dacourt says he and his team-mates must not dwell on the past and must look to the next match against Ancona.
"We must show other clubs who we are and carry on with continuity," said Les Bleus star.
"The win over Juve helps morale but the Bianconeri is the past. Now, we must look to Ancona. It will be a difficult match like the one with Juve, but we must keep up the good work to win the scudetto.
"We must enter the pitch trying to give our best without any distractions."
