"It was always going to be a special night and it was - not only for the goals but for the team", he added.
Ronaldo inspired the Italians to a stunning fightback with two towering headers and a nerveless late penalty, which sealed a 3-0 win on the night after they lost the first leg 2-0 in Madrid.
The financial gap between Atletico and the top European teams has been reduced significantly in recent years, and the club has gradually grown into one of the continent's main forces, providing Simeone near-perfect conditions to do his job. "This is what we wanted in the first leg".
It was Ronaldo's eighth hat trick in the Champions League, tying him with Barcelona star Lionel Messi. "All the boys showed their maturity, putting in a great performance".
The Portugal global was signed by Juve for £100million last summer and a serious tilt at the Champions League was part of the reason that he moved to the club.
And five-time Ballon d'Or victor, Ronaldo, pulled out a spectacular performance as he spearheaded the attack along with Federico Bernardeschi and Mario Mandzukic.

The Turin based club enjoyed more than 20 per cent rise in shares after the Portuguese scored the three goals.
Giorgio Chiellini fired home from close range after a goalmouth scramble from a corner, but both the referee and VAR controversially ruled that Ronaldo had kicked the ball out of the hands of goalkeeper Jan Oblak. "We didn't have many chances apart from (Alvaro) Morata's header".
But back after the break Ronaldo levelled the tie with his second goal. Juventus were awarded a penalty when Bernardeschi was pushed by Correa inside the area, and the 34-year-old stepped up to dispatch the penalty into the bottom corner.
It was all very different to the first leg where former Real Madrid forward Ronaldo was jeered by Atletico fans and the home side's second goal took a deflection off him.
"Juventus played in a similar way to what we did in the first leg".
"I don't think it was our worst performance, nor did I see a lack of character". Instead we had to pressure them, whilst also keeping a balance and we did it.
"You must congratulate opponents when they play a game like that and you are beaten like today".
