Juve were in talks with Atalanta for Doni and his team-mate Luciano Zauri, but the transfer collapsed leaving both to continue with the Bergamo outfit.
"It was a major disappointment," said Doni about his collapsed move.
"But I have forgotten that now, Juventus did not behave correctly with me and Zauri, but I guess they did not have their plans clear.
"I think playing for Juve would have been stimulating, but you have to see the positive side of things and I hope to answer what has happened on the pitch."
Ironically Doni and Zauri line-up for Atalanta on Sunday against Juve in their opening Serie A game.
Despite the game Doni said he is not bitter.
"I don't want to speak about taking revenge, but undoubtedly the chance to play against them could help.
"We are hopeful this season and could cause problems for many teams.
"I am a midfielder, but the coach could ask me a to play a deeper role and I will do this for the sake of the team."
